I have seen this topic within other threads before but never as a standalone. Obviously a matter of opinion and ultimately the only important opinion is your own. I'm curious nonetheless because I'm on the fence. I have been passively looking for a 375 for a few years now waiting for a good deal on a great condition rifle - never anything real specific. I found a Remington 700 375h&h I'm pretty interested in for probably $700 out the door - great condition. It is a push fed (not the topic of this thread) and stainless/synthetic Obviously if you are hunting the damp coast of, say, Alaska the stainless/synthetic is pretty hard to beat. But as it pertains to Africa: what say you?
